1  Well violets ARE blue. in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by gigiallin on: February 26, 2008 01:58:27 PM
I made a couple of CP soaps this week.
The first is a violet scented soap that seized up on me and the color morphed. It was supposed to be white with a purple swirl. Instead it's a white and blue layer with a textured top. There's quite a bit of ash on it too. At least it smells great. It's quite moisturizing too. It's about 10% shea butter.

This one is a castile (100% olive oil). I used a light olive oil this time and didn't let it gel. I'm really impressed with the color. It's really white and milky. I just made it last night, so it's still too caustic to try out. The bars were cut right before I took the picture, so they're a little messy. I discounted water to a 25% lye solution, but they still have about a 3 month cure ahead of them. I really hate the slimeyness of unaged castiles.

2  New soapies in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by gigiallin on: May 02, 2007 11:45:22 AM
Ooops I broke some rules in my last post. Anyways... I did finally get around to taking pictures of some of the CP soap I've made.

This is the first time I've ever posted pictures of something I've made. I'm scared...I hope you guys like it.

The first one is a Granola Bar soap it doesn't have any fragrance oils, but the natural beeswax, oats, and almonds give it a wonderful scent.

This one is a Tropical Drink soap. It smells like coconut and citrus punch. It has coconut mixed in to make it nice and scrubby.

This is not really a picture of the soap, but it's the only one I have. It's a shampoo bar. It has oils of peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary.

I also have some other soaps that I haven't taken photos of yet. One is mexican chocolate and the other is lilac, sandalwood,vanilla. I want to make a Sangria scented soap, but can't seem to get the scent down. It's always either too winey or too fruit juicy. I need to experiment more.
I'm so addicted to making soap. I don't have enough time, money or space to keep up with all my ideas. I have about 30lbs of soap strewn around my house. My roomies love that they don't need to buy soap anymore, but I think they're getting a little claustrophobic.
Soooo.....  Whadya think?
